boxing on bunny lane

could you live here?
re-purposed shipping containers, don't think I could live here {how hot would it get in there with the sides all closed up?} but I love the idea. It's like some crazy stage set design.
'Bunny Lane' by architect Adam Kalkin.
for more on the concept of Architecture as a constantly changing dynamic, this book {by The Whole Earth Catalog creator Stewart Brand} looks fantastic:

This use of shipping containers is becoming so common they've coined a genre name for it: Cargotecture!

It's cool, but personally I think I would just think of the container full of dead girls on The Wire and it would creep me out.

That is awesome! If only I had 2.8 million...
although first thing I would do is take down that wallpaper in the bedroom....yicky.

My husband is working on a project like this for some development in Utah (he's an architect). I'm forwarding this link to him right now!

I would live in a shipping container house, in the right location. Love it!

Provided the walls and roof had plenty of insulation, I'd happily move right in...right now!

I am obsessed with the use of shipping containers as stores and homes! Puma as just set up Puma City on the Boston waterfront as a temporary event venue and store-- can't wait to go. Illy coffee also had an uber cute pop open store created out of a small one.

Even though I am pretty traditional in my design sensibilities I would jump at the chance to live in a space created from these crates!

So long as there are windows I'm fine - it's a great way to repurpose

Sans the doll house interior adjunct and dowdy furniture... the imposing metal-clad container house engages the serene setting with its house-shaped glazing juxtaposed against the brick chimney and makes for an enchanting bit of real estate...
